T-09: Developing an in-vivo sensor for the detection of infectionswith helicobacter pylori
This project has various goals. The main aim is to develop a fast and highly selective helicobacter pylori (Hp) in vivo sensor. The measuring procedure is to be performed on the basis of an already developed in vitro sensor, which has been tested in a clinical study. This new and unique technique should enable gastroenterologists to quickly and simply conduct multiple Hp diagnoses during a gastroscopy, making the need to perform a biopsy for Hp testing superfluous. The results can be read immediately and any treatment can be commenced straight away following the examination. A further aim is to produce a living Hp culture. Appropriate experiments can be conducted on an ultra-pure Hp culture which make it very easy to research into growth and tolerance behavior. The findings can then be used to produce stomach models infected with Hp for clinical partners, thereby enabling them to conduct research into new approaches to diagnosis or treatment.
